    Whilst looking at Deluxe ROTF Ratchet, I kinda realized... he could make a good Deluxe Red Alert.

    Hear me out. His alternate mode is different enough from Ratchet, but re-painted, would still like an off-road Emergency Vehicle. His robot mode is different enough from Ratchet's that he could be considered a different robot entirely.
    Especially, if his head was re-molded, he would look like a completely different robot.

    Does anyone else agree with me?

    Hmmm i could see this being possible. Just change the emblems around new head sculpt and voila repaint to red alert.

    There are at least three deluxe Ratchets that you could be talking about, and I honestly have no clue which one you mean.

    probably movie-how many other lines are there with 2 Ratchets, with the second one coming out being a Deluxe, the first one would have been a non-deluxe. only the movie line makes sense.

    It works. But you're talking about Unicron Trilogy Red Alert. So boo-urns.

    If we're talking a Universe Red Alert, i think The Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold should get priority.

    And if Hasbro don't think there's enough demand for it, they could offer it to a retailer as an exclusive.

    Universe (G1) Red Alert Vs (G1) Sunstorm anyone?

    I think it would sell well enough, and i think some store or other would pick it up.

    I'd rather it be retooled into Movie 1 Inferno.

    Interesting idea. It could also work for an Animated Red Alert homage, as Ratchet's kibble sort of forms a skirt.

    Though personally I would rather they retool the head, and then repaint the mold as Rollbar (this guy).

    Now that I think about it, they could do a Deluxe Flatline with a Ratchet remold/repaint.
